    Default Recommend me a vacuum...

    DS has had a severe eczema breakout. After allergy testing yesterday his only allergen is dust mites. He is currently on a routine of wet dressings and bleach baths, it's effing awful

    So tomorrow we are on a mission to reduce all dust related allergens in our home - this won't stop eczema as it's immunity related and as he has also been sick, it's a likely trigger too. But we want to give him the best shot of health so we are out to replace;

    mattress
    pillow
    sheets
    doona

    and I need a range of vacuum recommendations please

    Go to some where like godferys I know they have a range of great vacuum cleaners that are endorsed by the asthma association of Australia which means they are great at getting all dirt and dust and trapping it away instead of going into the air and resettling again. They can usually also be used on mattresses as well. Good luck

    I just bought a Dyson multi floor. It is so powerful. There are attachments for dusting blinds, furniture etc.

    Bit on the expensive side but I am super happy with it and feel that it was money well spent.

    Sebo - more expensive than dyson but is so good.

    Which one did you get? Do you have to get the most expensive one? HN are advertising a Dyson under $400 at the moment I wonder if that one is good enough (carpet & tiles here)

    I'm in love with my Dyson stick vacuum.

    It's cordless and I can easily do the whole house on a single charge. I remove the stick and attach the brush end and use it to remove all the dust in the house. So much better than trying to 'dust' conventionally because you're actually sucking up the dust rather than wiping it around.

    It's a great stand alone vacuum. My corded vac hasn't been used once since I bought the Dyson stick.

    I'm pretty sure that's the one I got, the DC37. We got the hard floor tool because we have floorboards and have found the whole thing seriously amazing on our boards and carpets. I did go from an ultra cheapie to that one though, so a big difference!

    I second the dyson stick, it's so easy, you'll find you vacuum more often.
